These two videos show how easily it's possible to extrude edges to create faces. Notice how convenient the snapping makes it easy to stick the face to the other quads:

xan2622 (xan2622) added a comment to T67997: Retopology in Blender.

On one hand, it would have made sense to add a workspace dedicated to Retopology, because since version 2.80, Blender has been having many workspace tabs (at the top), one for each step of the 3D creation (Modeling, Sculpting, UV editing, Texture Painting, Shading..) and Retopology is part of it. That being said, consistently switching between a "Retopology" tab to the "Modeling" tab would be time consuming and counter-productive (I am glad that it has been decided to integrate the retopology tools into the Edit mode).

xan2622 (xan2622) added a comment to D6515: Sculpt: Expand 'Stroke Mode' enum to support quick switch to brushes and mask brush tool for keymaps on Sculpt.

I don't understand @Pablo Dobarro (pablodp606) and @William Reynish (billreynish) answer. Nobody have asked to have a "custom" brush in the a modifier key, we only want the only brush that we need to work. The mask tool. And the "shift" have no reason. I want to use shift, alt, ctrl,... not only shift. To map correctly invert, smooth and mask.
I don't htink that nobody will put a "cloth" brush in the shift key because is not a common tool. But mask, for example, is absolutely necesary in the same way that we made a box select with left click.
And we can't wait to this feature until the asset manager works, that can be more than a year...

WEBP is indeed more used nowadays than it was before. The most commonly used web browsers and graphics softwares already support this file type. It would be convenient if Blender could too.
I also hope that this patch could soon be reviewed. This could help make this great image file type more known/used.

Well, that would add two radio buttons. As radios cannot be turned off, we would also need an "All add-ons" button. I think this would clutter the UI too much.

Good point about the three radio buttons (they would indeed clutter the UI).

While this is a nice improvement of add-on filtering, it makes it slightly more difficult to search for a "disabled add-on" within the list of add-ons (since now, the disabled add-ons are listed with the activated ones).
Could it be possible to have two radio buttons for "Enabled Add-ons Only" and "Disabled Add-ons Only".

But after enabling Transform Gizmos (from the dropdown menu) and starting to select faces, I noticed a slight lag. And sometimes, I couldn't even see the "selection box".

From a user point of view I would not mind tucking them away into the popup at all, in fact I would encourage it.
I don't mind the additional clicks required, adding or removing Scenes/Layouts/Workspaces should not be that common task that it requires being always visible, I would value much more the saved space and cleaner UI. It would also add the benefit of allowing removing items other the just the current one.

Besides, I have found myself unintentionally removing layouts and scenes more often than I'd like to admit with the current setup. Having the remove button so prominent and without a prompt is especially concerning since removing a layout for example is not undooable currently.
